Immerse yourself in your highland experience on one of the shortest day's walking. You follow National Cycle Route Seven for most of the day and the going is good and mainly flat.

As you leave Callander you enter the highlands along the route of a disused railway line and soon pass the Falls of Leny and St. Brides Chapel. Loch Lubnaig keeps you company with reflections of the surrounding hills. For those feeling energetic there are several hills nearby which provide more of a challenge on this laid back day. If you have the energy or inclination Ben Ledi is a great walk and offers breathtaking views on a clear day.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.

Lots of beautiful views, but you are on the cycle route the whole time. For us that means it can be a bit crowded and you are on pavement for much of the day.
